PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON THE FUTURE OF THE PUBLIC FOREST ESTATE
EDM #1396
Tabled 02 February 2011
2010-12 Session
That this House recognises the volume of public concern in response to the Government's proposals regarding the future ownership and management of the public forest estate in England including concerns about access, continuing biodiversity and the length of leases; particularly notes suggestions that the proposals are unclear and that the amount of revenue generated would exceed the projected costs of such changes; feels therefore that the rationale of proposed sales is not clear to people; considers that the Government has not communicated its proposals well and has failed to convince people and many relevant organisations that these proposals are in the long-term interests of the UK's forestry; and calls on the Government to reconsider its position and to ensure that public consultation is genuine without predetermined decisions on ownership and that the consultation will determine the final outcome to ensure a long-term, sustainable future for the forests and woodlands of England that guarantees public access and the opportunity for people to enjoy them.
